Welcome Candy Candy,
to Lake Michigan.
Candy is stuck in a small town in Chiapas, Mexico, depressed and alone as she is raised by her Abuela until she discovers a television show that bears her name: Candy Candy. The series follows a beautiful, blonde, green-eyed heroine through a series of wild lovers as she travels across the globe to become a nurse. With only a blonde wig as her weapon, Candy escapes into a fantasy world of her own creation, leaving past traumas behind.
